The Chase into Hand to Hand Charleston

Mike and Tina show some 30s Charleston variations.

The moves in this video are: the Chase into Tandem – but not actually into Tandem, rather into hand 2 hand Charleston instead. Also a hand 2 hand variation.

A small piece of advice: when doing 30s Charleston variations, make sure to keep the bounce (pulse) on every beat.

30s Charleston and Hand to Hand Charleston

We introduced 30s Charleston in the first lesson, and we think it’s good to review it again after you have been through the other moves.

Simon and Natasya show 30s Charleston, Kick-Through Charleston and hand-2-hand Charleston.

In this video you will find the Kick-Through Charleston and the hand 2 hand Charleston.

While practicing all the steps in the video, make sure that you are always bouncing on every beat. Think of it like skipping rope: there is a mini jump (bounce) happening on each count.

30s Charleston basic side-by-side, Kick-through and hand-to-hand Charleston

Ann and Manu review the 30s Charleston basic and show the Kick-through and the hand-2-hand Charleston.

Leaders, start stepping (“rock stepping”) back on your left foot and followers on your right foot.

Do a small kick back on count 7, and for the leaders step down with your right foot on count 8 so that you are ready to start with your left foot on count 1 again. Followers, for you it’s just the opposite.

A common mistake is to forget to swing the arms. Make sure that when you are stepping back on your left leg your right arm is swinging forward, and that when you are kicking forward with your left leg your right arm is swinging back — the same as you do when you walk.

Leaders rock step away from your partner when you are leading the peel away move (1min09sec in the video).

Hand to Hand

Leaders, to get into hand to hand, when you are kicking in opposition to your follower you need to kick three times on the same leg: one time forward, the other time backwards, and the last time forward again. Alternatively you could do a rock step instead of one kick backwards: it is easier to stay balanced that way.
